Two Public Domain films: Watching "The Corpse Vanishes" (1942) I noticed Ed Wood's "Bride of the Monster" (1955) duplicated one scene. Both feature a pervert assistant who gets whipped by Lugosi. Even the fake stone wall backdrop is the same (hard to see in murky MPEG transfer). Wood was an avid Lugosi fan and studied all his films. A little trivia tidbit for historians of crap cinema.
